About This Wine:
For winemakers, being able to ply their craft in a certain region or with certain grape varieties can represent the realization of a long-held desire. It may involve making red blends in Bordeaux, or Chianti Classico in Italy, or Zinfandel in Sonoma County’s Dry Creek Valley.
For vintners who love to work with Chardonnay and/or Pinot Noir, one of the most desired sources of grapes is California’s Carneros region. Influenced by the cooling effect of the Pacific Ocean and a combination of summer fog, warm days and a long growing season, Carneros became an American Viticultural Area in 1983.
Its unique characteristics — the ocean, the Coast Mountain Ranges and San Francisco Bay — affect the region's terroir and put a distinctive stamp on its grapes. Cross Creek Winery’s 2019 Carneros Chardonnay is layered, complex, juicy and pure — a vintner’s dream wine.
